Ok ok. ..I will cut you some slack I guess. .. ;-)
Nice report! It makes 102 days seem so far away.
It's up to you CaptMorgan to get this forum back on a fun track.
Can we get the rest of the trip report PLEASE!?!?
He is in Vegas,if it's still standing.
Ok, ok, I'll finish the report tomorrow. The shakes, post-Vegas, are subsiding so I think I can type again soon!
So, the rumors are true? You two have been cheating on TTR with Vegas?? The nerve!
Tuesday, February 17 - Mardi Gras
The day before, we had made plans with Paul and Holly (JustAddVodka) to go to Isla Mujeres and partake in some golf cart and drinking silliness. We were supposed to meet in the buffet at 9AM, and if not for having committed to be there we would have stayed in bed -- we desperately needed sleep. But, the Island was calling our name, so off we went.
We missed the 10:30 ferry by just minutes. Note: if you're going to the island to do the golf cart thing, I highly recommend making the 10:30am ferry. The next one is not until 11:45 and that makes it tough to a) find a golf cart and, b) enjoy the island at a relaxed pace.
Having done this a few times, we knew to get a cart and go counter-clockwise which takes you to a fantastic Wal-Mart style grocery store (can't remember the name but it starts with a "C" and has Home Depot colored signs). This is a super place to get beer cheap, buy a foam cooler, and ice. In addition the exchange rate is highly favorable every time we've been, in this case, 14:1 I believe. So we bought two cases of beer for the four of us and headed out.
I mentioned this in previous TR's but we love this side-of-a-hill place called "The Joint" which is about halfway around the island. Fantastic food and drinks. After lunch we were pretty tuned-up so we started exploring the neighborhoods and generally just acting like a bunch of kids. It was fun. Returned the cart and back to the mainland. Wish we had caught that earlier ferry as it was a little too rushed.
We made it back to the sexy pool in time to see the craziness starting to wind down. Knowing that if we stopped drinking we would be done for the night, we decided to keep the party rolling, starting with a quick change and some buffet dinner once again. Tonight's theme was Mardi Gras (being that it was actually Fat Tuesday) so we got dressed up and headed over to Nice Shoes for Karaoke. The next hour in there was a blur, but I did manage to snap a few pics:
One thing you'll notice is from here on out is the look on my face is the same in every single picture. It's that look of surprise, and I have no idea why I was doing it all night. Anyway, Ailsha mentions that she has fireball in her room, so her, my wife, and I, and someone else (can't remember) decide to head up there to grab some. One thing I've learned is that where beautiful women go, men soon will follow. Before you know it there was 50 people in their room and we had blasted through all the available fireball and Rumchata. They had those split shot glasses where you could pour two liquors in them, and then drink them together. Fabulous! Someone else went to retrieve reinforcements, and the party kept going. I was snapping pictures like a maniac, but had to omit many of the best ones to protect the identities of the guilty.
Suffice it to say, there was a spanking contest (a contest with no winners, as I always say) and lots and lots of drinking. I'll let the pictures speak for themselves.
Somewhere along the way I lost the ability to take pictures, so that's where the trail of evidence dies. We eventually made it back to Paty-O's (I believe this was the night of the live band) which was terrible. We all had the boobs cruise the next morning, and I think most of us made it to bed around 3am.
Omg. These are the first pics I've seen of that night. Wow!
great pics! looks like you all had a blast!
Great job jeff. Your protection of the guilty is always appreciated!
Loving these installments, Cap'n! Thanks again for writing them up!
Question about this:
Do you mean the live band was terrible, or Paty'O that night was terrible? Our group spent the night of Mardi Gras doing the bead thang at Paty'O, and it was a great time, from what I can recall (which, admittedly, isn't a lot).
I meant the live band was terrible. My memory is foggy from this night but whatever night the live band was, I remember a lot of people complaining about it.
I love your trip reports! The night of the Surprised Face is hysterical! Another great installment as usual!
Its been a while since we've seen a trip report broken down like this. Very entertaining and just builds up the excitement for our next trip. Thanks
WOW. I'm glad I decided to spend my morning reading this! Great trip report... we gotta get back SOON.
Now lets get to that Boobs Cruise...
